Purina Pro Plan’s dedication to animals goes beyond their food bowl and focuses on the nutritional expertise that creates the nutritionally fortified food that you give your pets. Purina pro Plan combines wholesome and natural ingredients that can deliver a perfect blend of good taste and high quality nutrition. Purina Pro Plan offers products for cats, kittens, puppies and dogs in different categories such as dry, wet, shredded blend, specialized nutrition and Pro Plan Selects. The main ingredients in all of these products are real meat, barley, brewers rice and animal fat.

Real Meat

Purina Pro Plan’s main ingredient depends on which kind of Pro Plan food that you have. Some form of meat is the main ingredient in all Pro Plan products. Whether the food contains, beef, chicken, lamb, salmon or turkey, the meat is 100% real that contains high-quality protein that your pets needs. The meat product is usually paired with barley or brown rice. The different meats each offer different nutrients that will benefit the pet in many ways.


Barley is an ingredient found in pro plan products that helps the pet’s digestive system and gives them more energy. Carbohydrates and proteins in the barley are added to the to the pet’s diet. Some of the benefits of barley in pet food are that it helps provide energy and promotes digestibility. Most Pro Plan products that contain barley say so in the title. Other Pro Plan products may say brown rice in the title, but still have a high amount of barley content.

Brewers Rice

Brewers rice is similar to barley with the benefits that it can offer the pet, through its diet. It is added to the pet food to promote an efficient digestive system and provides the animal with energy that it needs to perform all its daily activities. Although brown rice is more nutritious, brewers rice contains a large amount of fiber that helps to regulate the pet’s digestion. The Pro Plan products that contain brewers rice provide the pet with a sufficient amount of carbohydrates.

Animal Fat

Animal fat added to Pro Plan products promotes wellness in your pet’s energy level and its skin and coat. These fats provide essential fatty acids preserved with a natural form of vitamin E. They are usually to blame for creating the strong odor that comes from pet food. Some animal fat can actually be rendered fat that is not safe for humans to eat. The flavor of the fat is also used to make the food taste better. Scientists have found that animals enjoy the taste.
